Llanddwyn is also popular with local pleasure boaters as the island has some very good off shore moorings. I hold a CAA Permit for Commercial Operation to fly and sell work from my drone.

The Duke of Lancaster, originally a cruise ship for up to 1,800 passengers ended up on the Welsh coast with plans for it to be used for a variety of leisure activities. Known to many as "The fun ship" the plan met prolonged and sustained opposition from local authorities and in the end the owner gave up and here the ship lies to this day. The graffiti was added by several artists over several years with the permission of the owner. I hold a CAA Permit for Commercial Operation to fly and sell work from my drone.
